Biography

New Orleans is a city defined by its unique and colorful history. It's for that reason that most tend to view the place as something of a musical museum while ignoring the town's vibrant and innovative new music. In New Orleans, the hip-hop at the heart of today's culture emerged from an energetic, highly eroticized and occasionally gender-bending music called "bounce". ...

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 Jun. 2003
Format: Audio CD
The last CD I bought recorded live at Tipitina's was by the Neville Brothers, so this had a lot to live up to. And it did, in spades.
13 tracks of pure New Orleans funk, mixing and matching originals and covers. The groove ridden covers include songs by Duke Ellington ("Blue Pepper"), Allen Toussaint ("Working in a Coal Mine"), Chocolate Milk ("My Mind Is Hazy"), and a quite stunning reworking of Black Sabbaths "Sweet Leaf". Fortunately, the original tracks more than hold their own in such elevated company with the Meters like "Moog Marmalade" being particularly fine.
Not being a resident of the USA, I can only imagine the full life affirming joy of a Galactic live show (but I amssured that a fabulous light show and the stench of patchouli oil are de riguer).
This is primarily an instrumental set, but Theryl de Clouet adds souldful vocals when required, and a special mention goes to Robert Mercurio who defines the funk bass. Even if you don't normally go for jam bands, this could be the one to turn your head.

This is a great album and my favourite Galactic record. It's so funky it isn't true. It's also very diverse, a great recording and a good representation of the band live.

If you want an introduction to Galactic, start here. And then proceed to "From the Corner to the Block". You won't regret it.

Not Galactic? Huh? Great disc! 11 Dec. 2001
By Bryan F. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whoever said this CD was lacking "groove" or "soul" obviously knows little about music. This is Galactic's best release to date, just worlds better than their studio work. It's funky, laid-back, and groovin'. Good mix of tunes, a great "Blue Pepper" and the "Bobski > Villified" is awesome. If you are a fan of this hard-to-classify jazzy funk, Nawlins gumbo, pick this up. It won't fail to put a smile on your face and make all ten toes tap.

Hot funky jazz 30 Aug. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My first Galactic album, and it won't be the last. If some of the other reviewers (who don't like this album as much as Galactic's prior efforts) are correct, I have to get more.
This is extremely hot.

This IS Galactic NOLA 4 Oct. 2001
By sean-o - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So much for the two star guy.. he needs to get his ears cleaned, and see the band now, not in 1999. This band is so progressive that he didn't even realize who he was listening to! Yeah, you don't get the energy of a live show on a CD, and Nick did fool with the dials, but the more you listen to this, the more you'll realize that these guys are the real deal. Funk, groove, jammin' rock and all the NOLA you want. Mercurio holding the base down, Stanton pounding, Vogel getting funked-out in the shadows and Raines stepping into the spotlight and tearing it up. The CD is a B, the band live is an A. Check it out.

Newbie fan; quite impressed 22 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though I've been downloading random Galactic songs for a while, I've always been told that NOTHING can capture the intensity of a live show and, while not being able to attend one yet, waiting for this album seemed to be the next best thing. I must say that as I continue to listen, it becomes more and more worth it. Though some of the jams become monotonous without the true live feel, there are more than enough gems on this cd to keep a listener occupied. Check out "shibuya" and Sabbath's "sweet leaf".. you won't be disappointed.

A solid disc worth having 4 Jan. 2002
By "senoramour" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having seen these guys live a couple of times, I know they spare no expense (sweat) in kicking out the groove. This recording is no exception to the fantastic live sound that results. However, I think the creative punch of the band has been tapering since Coolin' Off. Granted, they've produced some gems since that first disc, but have failed to recapture that fresh feel that originally turned me on to their sound. This album is not necessarily a natural progression in that trend, as it does include some very interesting covers, and a previously unreleased Moog Marmalade (which is sick), but I feel like they need to switch gears to retain my interest. Bottom line, you should own this album, especially if you're into galactic, but don't expect it to blow your mind.
